My dad and I are trying to upgrade the scope on his 25 year old custom Klein Guenther .22-250. The rifle is a tack driver and has a leupold on it now. We would really like to get improved clarity and light transmission out of the new scope. I really don't think we will be taking this gun out past 4-500 yards so we don't need a high magnification scope but a variable up to the mid teens would be good. We also aren't looking for a super bulky scope. Our price range is about $1500. We are really looking for some quality long lasting glass. We have looked at Leica, Zeiss, Swarovski, and Nightforce to name a few. What recommendations or experience do y'all have with these and other comparable scopes? Thanks for reading my post and any input you have.
